Friday’s Factoid: Divorced Parents - Whose information should you use when completing the FAFSA? (1 post)

  • nthea | 1 month, 1 week ago:

    If your parents are divorced, you will need to report information about the parent you lived with for the greater amount of time during the 12 months prior to the date you file your FAFSA application. If you didn’t live with either parent, or if you lived with each parent an equal amount of time, you must use information about the parent who provided the greater amount of financial support during the 12 months prior to the date you file your FAFSA application. If you didn’t receive any financial support from either parent during that time, you will need to report information about the parent who most recently provided the greater amount of financial support.

    If the parent that you receive financial support from is now remarried, you will need to include your stepparent’s financial information on the FAFSA.

    If the parent that you receive financial support from is single or has not remarried, you will need to include only that parent’s financial information on the FAFSA.
